Cruzeiro star Lucas Silva "keen" to join Real Madrid

Cruzeiro midfielder Lucas Silva admits he's "keen" to play for Real Madrid.

Real have had one confirmed offer for the young Brazilian turned down by Cruzeiro in the past week.

"All I can say is that I will continue to be a Cruzeiro player. I'm really keen to play for a team like Real Madrid, due to the size and stature of the club," said Lucas.

"However, that's in the hands of the club and my company.

"Right now I'll try to enjoy the holidays after a fantastic year."
